Description:

'All I want is to be a success. That's all I ask.' Joe fails to sell a single set of the Encyclopedia Britannica in six months. Then he fails to sell a single Electrolux and must eat hundreds of pieces of homemade pie, served up by his would-be customers who feel so sorry for him. Holed up in his trailer, Joe finds an outlet his for frustrations in a series of ingenious sexual fantasies, and at last strikes gold. His brain storm, Lightning Rods, Inc., will take Joe to the very top - and to the very heart of corporate insanity - with an outrageous solution to the spectre of sexual harassment in the modern office.

Quotes:

...funny, filthy...its true brilliance lies in DeWitt's careful deployment of language..., New York Times

DeWitt's deadpanned humor makes this slim book into a complex story that works as both surrealist metaphor and corporate parody., New York Observer

an original, sometimes titillating, exploration of human nature and American initiative., Booklist

The novel is artful without artifice, unabashedly blunt in all matters sexual, and scathing in its satirical attack on sexual harassment in the workplace., AudioFile Magazine
